Sweet Potato Latkes … aka Sweet Potatoes for those who “hate” sweet potatoes

In my opinion, there are two “camps” in terms of sweet potatoes. Those full of people who love them and can’t get enough, and those who “hate” them. Personally, I think most of the haters have never experienced an amazing sweet potato. They write them off as something that comes out of a can in the form of mush and is then slathered in a bunch of sugar and marshmallows so that you can’t taste the lingering aluminum.
I used to “hate” sweet potatoes.
Now I eat them nearly every day. Generally, I just throw one in the oven when I get to work, and get to it when I get to it.

The fiancĂ© is in the “hate” sweet potatoes school. This recipe, however, has proven to be a middle ground. I created it specifically with him in mind, but we also served it at the bar as a weekend special, where it went over quite well.
Dip these little latkes in whatever you want - I suggest a Greek yoghurt/Sriracha mixture for a quick protein boost.

Whether you choose to make a meal out of these, serve them as a light appetizer, or have them as a side dish (we had them along side some venison tenderloins) – they are nutritionally sound, can be whipped up in a snap, and are sure to impress even your picky eaters.






3 Thoughts on “Sweet Potato Latkes … aka Sweet Potatoes for those who “hate” sweet potatoes

  1. Oh, I agree that there are lovers and haters. When people tell me they don’t like them, I want to scream YOU HAVEN’T HAD THEM THE RIGHT WAY!!! So many different ways to make them!

    My most favorite is slicing them thin and frying in coconut oil until browned, then putting them on a paper towel to dry and crisp up to make sweet potato chips. Sprinkle with salt. DELICIOUS. But time consuming.. so usually stick to the baked. Smothered in cinnamon and almond butter.

    • I make a hideous breakfast mash up with half a baked sweet potato, avocado, over easy eggs and Sriracha. Just mash it all up and mix it together :) It is delightfully ugly. But so effin good!

  2. I agree! I used to hate sweet potatoes! Then I tried sweet potato fries. They’re still not my favorite but I’m definitely more open to them. I’m saving this recipe to give it a try! Thanks for sharing!!
